Got 12/20.

Mury would be Angry with me.

Really dumb, I tried 'williams' to cause I couldn't remember if women were in, and it didn't work, so I thought they weren't

14/20.

Mostly missed the men before my time (Borg, McEnroe (really should've gotten him), Connors, Edberg and Becker). Only woman I missed was Goolagong!

Newcombe (couldn’t remember his name) King (kicked myself on that one) and Goolagong. 2 mins was quite tough and without any cheating.
Goolagong is not a bad miss. Many people recall her first win very well but often forget she won a 2nd title 9 years later. :cool:

Dumb. You enter “Federer” and it marks it a correct answer for Roger Federer. But enter “Williams” and says incorrect. But the answers reveal Serena Williams and Venus Williams.

So you did better with the women than with the men? Why am I not surprised?? :D
I for sure was not surprised haha. Found it easier to remember the older women’s names as I know more about them. Evert, Navratilova, Graf, BJK etc.
Gotta say, I never really knew much about Borg, Connors or Edberg growing up, even now they don’t carry much resonance with me. McEnroe was notorious and I can’t believe I missed that one. Laver, Sampras and Newcombe were easy along with the newer ones. I almost forgot Murray as I was remembering his first one but then remembered that boring one against Raonic ;)

Wow, can't imagine Borg carrying no resonance for anyone watching tennis at that time. He was my very first tennis idol (in some ways still the greatest). Maybe you were a bit too young to appreciate him? :eek:

There will never be anything boring about Murray winning a Wimbledon title. :)

Yeah I think you’re missing which time period I grew up in ;) Wasn’t Borg the 70s? Not saying he isn’t big just that he doesn’t have much resonance with me. People before him and after him I know about like McEnroe and Laver and even Bill Tilden (mostly off court) but yeah can’t say I’m that knowledgeable on Borg. I think he was a real ladies man?

Haha thought you’d enjoy the last little bit. I’m glad Murray got to #3. It looks like that might be all he gets to at this rate :(
